Raytheon Intelligence & Space is proud to lead a new alliance of innovators and industry leaders committed to cost-effectively ensuring a secure, future-proof network architecture for the FAA.

The airspace of the future looks drastically different from what we see today. In 10 years there will be as many as one billion drones flying overhead. In order to ensure the safety of the flying public the FAA must develop a flexible and efficient path for introducing new capabilities and entrants.

From proactive cyber threat hunting to GPS-guided precision landing to enhanced mid- and long-range weather planning, Raytheon Technologies continues to pave the way for the data-driven, dynamic future of air travel. Our unique portfolio of automation, surveillance, navigation and landing solutions — backed by extensive expertise in cybersecurity, analytics and advanced software development — is improving safety and efficiency across more than two-thirds of the world's airspace.
